Borders

The thing about Borders is that at least at the one near me, their version of Mandrake/Mandriva is always at least a version behind the current one and sometimes two versions behind. Not sure who's fault that is, but it certainly doesn't help.

It's likely old stock. We don't really do retail distribution of the boxes in the U.S. any more, it wasn't economic. If they had the books which include 10.1 CDs, then that's the latest U.S. stores have available to them, there was no book version of 2005 and we didn't do one for 2006 yet (don't know if one is planned).
